Sarah Garcia (1928-2015) was born at Laguna Pueblo to Maria Trujillo.  However, she spent her adult life at Acoma Pueblo.  She, along with Jessie Garcia, Lucy M. Lewis, and Marie Z. Chino, was largely responsible for the revival of Anasazi and Tularosa designs on contemporary Acoma vessels.  Her daughter Goldie Hayah continues making pottery.  This bowl is painted with rain designs.  They are both the larger black lines, along with the thin lines.  It is an elegant use of classic Acoma iconography.  The bowl was traditionally fired outside so there are some color variations on the surface.  It is signed on the bottom, “S. Garcia”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
